Apple Crisp with Zucchini

Yes, you read that right. Apple Crisp without apples. Instead, you can use the plethora of zucchini that the garden seems to be putting out this time of year.

And your family won’t be able to tell the difference. Trust me.

You may even decide to grab all that extra zucchini that others are trying to unload. But don’t take my word for it - just try it and see!

Ingredients for Zucchini {not Apple} Crisp

  • 8 cups of diced zucchini
  • 3/4 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 3 tsp. cinnamon, divided
  • 1/4 tsp. nutmeg
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1 stick butter


  1. Peel zucchini and dice into small bite-sized pieces. Put in frying pan and add lemon juice and cinnamon. Bring to low boil over medium high heat and let simmer for 20 minutes or until zucchini pieces are tender. Add 1/2 cup of sugar. Stir well until sugar is dissolved.
  2. Put zucchini mixture into the bottom of a 9x13 casserole dish.
  3. Mix oats, brown sugar, flour, a teaspoon of cinnamon, and nutmeg together. Cut in the stick of butter until the mixture is well blended into small crumbs.
  4. Sprinkle topping mixture over zucchini and bake at 375 for 30-40 minutes, until the filling is bubbly and the topping is melted.
  5. Serve with ice cream and enjoy!
